An amazing book that is a must-read for teen authors. I also think that adults could benefit from reading this book too because it's very well organized and breaks down the drafting, editing/revising, and submission stages of the traditional publishing model. (If you plan on self-publishing, obviously you won't need the submission stage part, but the rest will still be extremely helpful to you. I read this book in an afternoon (I read quickly), but as I've been rapidly moving through the drafting and revision stages of my novel, 7th Heaven, I've found this book immensely useful!

About the Book
Title: Go Teen Writers
Author: Stephanie Morrill & Jill Williamson
Publisher: Novel Teen Press
Publication Date: March 1, 2013
The question we hear most from new writers is, “How do I get published?”
And the answer is: Respect your dream.
Every writer’s journey is different, yet as we’ve reflected on our experiences and those of the writers around us, we've seen time and time again that those who are successful are the ones who had the patience and endurance to stick with this writing thing. They didn't look for shortcuts (at least, not for long), nor did they quit after five, ten, or one hundred rejections.
We can’t make the process easy for you, but it’s our hope that this book will be a tool you can turn to time and time again when you’re thinking, “Okay … what’s next?”
